HILL of Beath Hawthorn’s under-20s created club history on Friday when they clinched the Scottish Lowlands Development Football League Conference C title for the first time.

They had to beat second top Musselburgh Athletic at Beath High School to do so and give manager Lindsay Scott a magnificent end to her time with the side.

Ms Scott, a teacher by profession, is to take over a head role soon and has had to take a step back from her love of coaching football, but the young Hill of Beath team did not let her down.

In front of big crowd, the Haws, needing a draw to clinch the title, made a great start to the game and took the lead through Jens Moret and their superiority told before the break with Jordan Tosh and Scotty Chalmers making it 3-0 at the interval.

The Hill of Beath dominance continued after the break and Chalmers went on to complete a fine hat-trick, and another Moret goal brought the finally tally to six.

It capped a great season for the 20s, who finished with 52 points from 22 games, pipping Musselburgh by four points.

Scott said: “Not quite sure there are enough words to sum up how proud we are of these guys.

“A tremendous performance from them last night to finish our season in the best way possible. To a man they were absolutely brilliant.

“The best bunch of boys anyone could hope for. Absolutely delighted for them. League champions - it doesn’t get better than that.

“Last night’s man-of-the-match goes to every single one of them, absolute superstars.

“To our twelfth man, our amazing supporters who turned up in their numbers last night to see us over the line, we appreciated it so much. Thank you.

“The perfect end to the most amazing journey.

“It’s been a privilege.

“Finally, A special shout out to Paul, the coaches and the players of Musselburgh Athletic U20s.

“A talented bunch of players and some really good people.

“They pushed us all the way and they should be really proud of all they have achieved.

“We wish them the all the best for the future.”
